Pico de Gallo
This is a simple recipe with a wonderful fresh addition to any Mexican dish you make. It's great for an appetizer with chips. You can also add avocado chunks to it for an extra depth of flavor.
This is a very simple recipe.
Equal parts diced onion, tomato, and chopped cilantro leaves. Add one jalapeno pepper finely diced. Make sure you seed the jalapeno pepper. Add juice from one half or a whole lime. Salt and Pepper to taste. I also added 1/2 teaspoon sugar.
If you start with more than 1 cup onion, tomato and cilantro you might want to add more jalapeno. It really depends on how hot you like your Pico de Gallo.
